England players, you mean?

You obviously don’t mean the Brazil, Dutch, German, French and Argentina teams. :D

And why not check how well English teams did in Europe in the 70s, starting with Liverpool? :D

Are you sure you’ve found all of the European competition cup winners, UEFA and European cups?

I’m sure Liverpool won at least four themselves. And then there was Forest, and maybe Spurs, Leeds, Chelsea or Man City?

Here’s European & UEFA Cup winners and runners up.  We were good in the 70s compared to the decades in the next thirty years or so.

England had some great players in the 70s, just didn't pick them often. Players such as Hudson, Osgood, Currie, Bowles, Marsh, George...Sir Alf didn't want wingers, probably why The Don didn't win an England cap. Workmanlike midfielders were preferred by Ramsey and Revie, while class teams such as Brazil, Holland, West Germany, Argentina, Italy, dominated.

Some members of the press and FA officials wanted him in the 1970 World Cup squad, the ITV panel had him as sub in a Great Britain side of Banks, Newton, England, Moore, Cooper, Ball, Bremner, Lee, Greaves, Davies, Best Sub:Rogers. No Bobby Charlton!

Looks impressive that list, English teams winning 7 out of 8 European Cups  late 70s/80s, Liverpool, Forest, Villa, was surprising England teams were so poor then. Arsenal won Fairs Cup in 70, and Swindon won Anglo-Italian Cup.

We can only assume, now that he has been shamed by those statistics, that Orion is on the bench for Chelsea tonight! :D
